Breweries teaming up for Alabama environmental group

MOBILE, Ala. (AP) — Some south Alabama breweries are working on a new beer to benefit a nonprofit environmental group that works to protect the state's coast.

Six breweries in Mobile and Baldwin County are teaming up to produce an ale called "Friends in Low Places IPA" as a fundraiser for the Alabama Coastal Foundation.

The New England-style India pale ale will be available in the coastal region beginning next month, and it will go statewide after that.

Participating breweries include Braided River, Iron Hand, Old Majestic and Serda in Mobile, plus Fairhope Brewing and Big Beach Brewing in Baldwin County.

The Alabama Coastal Foundation started in 1993. It teaches about the state's coastal environment and works to preserve marine ecosystems.
